UAE launches new campaign to get residents home

In other news, the UAE has stepped up its efforts to bring over 200,000 UAE residents back home.

While some residents have been able to start returning to the UAE, tens of thousands have been stranded across the world after borders closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The first phase of the campaign to get UAE residents back home took place between March 25 and June 8. The UAE initially prioritised humanitarian cases and families and relatives that had been split up. The news comes as the UAE starts to prepare to reopen its borders to the world.
